With two days packed with content and a program specifically designed to inspire networking and audience engagement, the recently concluded 2015 Oil & Gas Exchange provided attendees the opportunity to explore the most relevant topics and challenges currently facing the industry.

Session Highlights:

  • The Yates Memo, a September memorandum from Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates to all DOJ attorneys, was front- of- mind as it calls for increased individual accountability for corporate crimes
  • Navigating the current economic state of the oil and gas industry with increased Government scrutiny on anti-corruption violations has been an ongoing concern for compliance officers as they struggle to balance limited budgets and resources with the real risks of costly fines and non-compliance
  •  Both the DOJ and SEC are increasing cooperation with foreign enforcement counterparts, particularly in Europe, in an effort to eliminate back logs and deficiencies when obtaining evidence
  •  “Check the box compliance” was cited as a major pet peeve for both enforcement agencies, as they emphasized that compliance programs must go beyond what is written in the manual and must truly reflect the reality of what is happening within an organization
  • Tools and best practices for combatting training fatigue were shared as the need to create an engaging and effective training program becomes more important than ever
